Criss, former student, to sign new book

Posted on: February 11th, 2012 by

Leslie Criss, a former Ole Miss journalism graduate student, has penned an award-winning column for a trio of Mississippi newspapers over the course of nearly two decades – The Carthaginian, The Vicksburg Post, and for the past 12 years, the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal in Tupelo, where she is the features and special sections editor. 
In her columns, Criss holds forth on a steady stream of subjects from pets to pretzels and everything in between. 

The title of her book is “Still and Yet: A Collection of Columns.” The foreword was penned by Rheta Grimsley Johnson.  Criss will have a signing at at Square Books at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28.
